Love Libraries

The MLA-hosted Love Libraries campaign has just launched a revamped version of the Young Librarians of the Future competition.

This year, it's Top 10 New Librarians 2007. There are a few differences between the new contest and the old one:

  1. Last year, it was for under-30s. This year, it's people who have been working in public libraries for no more than three years. I could enter!
  2. Last year, the judging panel was made up of various worthies from MLA, TRA, SCL, and even M&B. This year, you get to be judged by last year's winners. That's basically me and my friends...
  3. The name, obviously. I suppose you can only do Young Librarians of the Future once.

If you've been working in public libraries for less than three years, and you (or your colleagues/bosses/whoever) think you've got what it takes, you should enter.
